Notice of General Meeting



The Company has issued a circular to its shareholders ("Shareholders") to convene a general meeting to seek Shareholder approval for a proposed reduction of the Company's capital ("Capital Reduction").  The meeting is to be held at 10.30 a.m. on 7 June 2017 at the offices of Bircham Dyson Bell LLP, 50 Broadway, London SW1H 0BL.


As stated in the Company's prospectus dated 12 April 2017, the Company's directors (Board) intend to distribute approximately 60 per cent. of its adjusted profits after tax each year to Shareholders through dividends. The Directors consider that the Capital Reduction will enable the Company to pay an interim dividend to Shareholders for the year ended 31 December 2017. Therefore, the Board is proposing the Capital Reduction in order to create such distributable reserves, which will also protect any potential future impairment in the Company's investment in its subsidiaries.


As a result of the Capital Reduction, the future profits of the Company earned after that date on which the Capital Reduction takes effect would then be available for the Board to use (should circumstances in the future make it desirable to do so) for the purposes of buying back existing ordinary shares of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") as well as paying dividends.

The completion of the Capital Reduction will not affect the rights attaching to the Ordinary Shares, and will not result in any change to the number of Ordinary Shares in issue.

The Capital Reduction, if approved by the Shareholders and confirmed by the High Court, will (subject to any undertakings the Company may be required to give to the High Court regarding the protection of its creditors) create additional distributable reserves of approximately £38.2 million.


The circular gives more detail on the Capital Reduction, including the justification, process and timescales. The circular is available on the Company's website at www.tegplc.co.uk and a copy of the circular has been submitted to the Financial Conduct Authority via the National Storage Mechanism (the "NSM") and will be available for inspection on the NSM's website at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/nsm.do.
